- Wedding: November 2011 - Florida Aquarium
I swear I’ve filled this out twice, but the computer must have rejected it! I’m looking forward to traveling this journey with you all!
When did you get your BFP/what cycle day were you on?: 3/27, CD 32
How many DPO were you before you saw that second line?: 16 DPO. We weren’t trying, so I didn’t test until I was really late.
Estimated Due Date?: First week of December.
When is your first appointment? I saw the doctor last week because I was having spotting and cramps on one side. She did an intravaginal ultrasound, and everything looked okay. I go back April 19 for another U/S and hopefully she’ll just do my 8 week stuff, since I’ll be, well, 8 weeks.
How will you (or how have you) told your friends and family: My husband got the shock of his life with a gift bag of Prego and the tinkle stick, with a card of two raccoons holding hands around a tree that said, “Hold on tight and get ready… you’d gonna be a dad!” And two shots completed the set up. My best friend was supposed to call me, and when she didn’t, I texted her a pic of the tinkle stick. She called me immediately, yelling at me that when someone forgets to call, you pick up the phone and call her… don’t send her a picture! And then she yelled, “We’re having a baby!” Best. Response. Ever. I told a coworker because I needed to… I said, “Remember yesterday when you told me to get pregnant? Well, I did.” HA! He told his best friend by telling him. No one else knows yet.
What are you looking forward to most? Just being a mommy.
What are you most nervous about? Getting through 12 weeks and having a successful, uneventful pregnancy. And birth. That scares the shit out of me.
What symptoms have you been feeling (if any)?: Oh dear. Morning sickness is insane; my poor nose just can’t catch a break; shortness of breath; cramps… I think that’s all?
Is this your first baby? If not how many siblings does your peanut have?: It’s our first human, but it’ll have a 4 year old corgi big sister and two 3 year old ferrets.
Anything you’ve given up so far?: Caffeine, liquor, travel plans… I’m vegan, so I’m good on most of the food stuff.
